These handmade artisan earrings feature hammered gold brass dangles accented with mookaite gemstones. The stones have a natural swirly pattern in hues of deep purple, burgundy and yellow. Modern, earthy - yet elegant, they'll look great with a variety of outfits - dressed up or down!

Mookaite is a jasper found only in Australia. It comes from the Mooka Creek in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia. It is a colorful stone with bold, striking colors which are created when ancient sea bed sediment hardens and turns into a mottled rock. The range of colors come from the remains of various marine organisms as well as the minerals in the water.

I created the shapes out of solid gold brass sheet, hammered the organic texture into the metal, and then domed them slightly for dimension. The metal was oxidized, buffed and polished for an antiqued finish.

MEASUREMENTS:
Total length: 2-3/8” from top of bronze ear wires and 1” at widest point. They are signed on the back with my initials. The metal was sealed with jeweler's wax to protect the patina and resist tarnishing.
